Perhaps you have always been an A+ student, an overachiever. One who doesn’t see failure as an option.
But in life, comes failures, rejections, and disappointments. Guaranteed.
You can TRY to prepare for these but almost always, it will happen at the moment you least expect it.
Sharp turns and detours that will take you on a rollercoaster ride.
And because we’re humans, our first instinct is survival, trying to control things and turn it around.
But we can’t. And the best we can do is to accept it.
No matter how hard we try, we will fail at one point in our lives. Failure is essential to our growth.
We fail so we can learn things about life and about ourself. We fail so the next time, we know ourselves a little bit better to be able to handle failures better than before. And we fail so we can appreciate success more.
For instance, if I am to invest in a business, I would choose the one who has failed but kept on trying instead of the one who never failed.
Why? Because failures can teach you so much more than success can.
So don’t fear failure, instead, embrace it because everytime you do, guaranteed… you will be transformed into a much wiser and better version of you.
Sending you love from my side of the world! Cheers!
